Hear from over 80 speakers including: Education Technology Indaba Honourable Angie Motshekga Gwebinkundla Qonde Minister of Basic Education, Acting Director-general, South Africa Department of Higher Education & Training Safety & Security in Educational Institutions Brian O’Connell Johannes Cronjé Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Dean, Informatics and Design, University of the Western Cape, Cape Peninsula University of South Africa Technology, South Africax Maths & Sciencey Literacy 6 – 8 July 2011 Johannesburg, South Africa Participating ministries: Sport & Recreation www.educationweek.co.zaPlatinum sponsor: Preferred financial partner: gold sponsors: Silver sponsors:MACMILLANBronze sponsors: Supported by: Endorsed by:
    • WELCOME Welcome from Brian O’Connell There is an adage which says that knowledge is power. Is this true? We know that South Africa leads the world in HIV infections and that our nation has now to deal with the incredibly complex and very costly challenge of educating our people about this virus and how one prevents infection. We have to encourage our people to test for infection and this involves a contest against stigma. We must also try to keep those infected alive through nutrition, medication and care, especially from family and friends. In addition we have child-headed families because their parents have succumbed to Aids, and ways must be found to support such families. We now know that much of what we must do to combat this virus depends on education and new knowledge. One source of new knowledge about this new virus HIV and its devastatingly clever means of propagating itself by destroying our immune systems came to South Africa in 1988: a book on HIV/Aids written by graham Jeffries. In his preface the author writes that HIV/Aids can have devastating consequences for South Africa and can only be responded to in two ways: vaccination and education. As there was no vaccination in sight, our only defence was education and the ways in which we would have to change our behaviour because of what we now knew. In the appendix to the booklet he gives a table of confirmed cases of infection in all the countries in the world. South Africa had only 159 known cases of infection then but today we project an infection count of more than five million South Africans. Why, given this early warning, did we fail to protect our nation from this terrible virus? The conclusion we must draw is that education is power but only if you use it well. Education Week provides us with a wonderful opportunity to be truthful about what our challenges are and to face up to what we must do to secure our future. Brian O’Connell Rector and Vice-Chancellor, University of the Western Cape, South Africa Welcome from Johannes Cronjé With almost half of its one billion population under 15, Africa looks to education, technology and investment to relieve its youth from chronic unemployment and poverty. Recently, great advances have been made with the introduction of new technology to formerly disadvantaged schools. government’s contribution to public education has grown year on year and education remains its largest item of spending. FET colleges and universities are working more closely with industry to bridge the skills gap, to produce learners that are equipped with the necessary skills to find employment and take their place in the workforce. The question is no longer, Should we use technology in education?, but rather, How can we make it part of the educational offering?. The Education Technology Indaba brings together experts from South Africa and beyond to examine the challenges and the solutions currently being implemented and the latest developments in this field. We are certain that you will find the conference a rewarding and useful experience. You will have the opportunity to meet with great presenters and industry experts and we look forward to meeting you and exchanging experiences and opinions. We hope that you will leave the conference inspiredx with new ideas and information to explore the opportunities and ways of incorporating technology to enhance teaching and learning.y Johannes Cronjé Dean, Informatics and Design, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa Hi, my name is Sekou, I am the Education Week mascot to bring the voice of the children to your ears. I believe in quality education for all and to give children the potential to be anything they want to be. Education is the most basic insurance against poverty. Education represents opportunity. At all ages, it empowers people with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to shape a better future. Please help us to drive quality education for all. The boy name Sekou is pronounced as SEHK-UW †. Sekou is derived from African origins. Sekou is of the meaning educated. 2 6 – 8 July 2011, Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA

AVP is a pre-emptive conflict resolution, and personal leadership development programme. The goals of the AVP programme are to enable: • All stakeholders i.e. educators, management, parents, learners and support staff to collaborate in creating an environment which enhances learning by transforming their behaviour to support a “norm” of co-operation and nonviolence. This is based on the understanding that conflict resolution goals are congruent with educational goals. • Learners, educators and parents to become leaders and role-models to their peers, by making positive life choices and by taking responsibility for their actions and their self-development. This process also takes the programme into the community and families. The workshop will work on building a sense of community and trust through participatory exercises focusing on: • Affirmation • Communication • Cooperation • getting in touch with our inner power and capacity to transform situations creatively.
